A police officer was injured on Saturday evening during a routine traffic stop at a police checkpoint on a road in Theux, in the province of Liège. The suspect failed to stop for police, evading the roadblock, and striking the officer with his vehicle.
A chase between the police and the suspect quickly ensued between the municipalities of Pepinster and Verviers. The suspect was eventually intercepted by police and arrested.
